I noticed whoever it was following me long before I ever made it home. And when I got there I figured I should give them a good chase. I get out of the car and walk into the house, “Hey, anyone home?”
“Yeah.” My brother calls. We’re twins, kind of identical. I mean we look alike enough. But I don’t see it the way others do. I explain to him the entire situation, that someone is following me, anyway. Not the actual situation. I tell him I need to lose the tail, he goes and drives off in my car.
Sorry, Alannah, but I can’t have you following me around while I’m trying to get something real done. I didn’t tell Roger, my brother, where to go, just to go somewhere. He should keep her busy for awhile.
I take his car from the garage and drive to Pierce and Pierce, the day is just beginning. I need to figure out what I’m going to do. Sit and watch, or actively participate in what I’ve started.
